Who doesn’t love a sale?
Through the end of March, you can pick up a terrific, versatile red wine from Provence, France for a mere $11.99 (regularly priced at $14.99). The wine is Figuière Famille Combard Le Saint André.
One of the things I love about the wines of Provence is that they tend to be uncomplicated, yet refined, with great minerality. I also like that they tend to be inexpensive bargains. This wine surely is one of them.
Provence’s Figuière is a family-owned domaine – a 210 acre organic vineyard located in La Londe, overlooking the Iles d’Or off the French Riviera. They produce sun-drenched wines, such as their Rosés, that tend to be excellent summer sippers. “We want every wine from Figuière to show the uniqueness of Provence and terroir expression of La Londe,” said Magali Combard, daughter of Alain Combard who founded Figuière. “We like clean wines and we like to feel vitality of the earth.”
That is certainly the case with Figuière Famille Combard Le Saint André, which is a spot-on red wine for outdoor barbecues. It’s a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cinsault and Grenache with garnet and violet coloring. Cherry and spice flavors with hints of wood make this a great choice for drinking with grilled meats. Stock up while it’s on sale this month!
